The T2000 was a trampoline.
It was not particularly well made, and broke easily.

That said, it is one of the classic racquets of all time - mostly because of what it represented at the time. It was something new and different - and innovative. Connors loved it - so much so that when he ran out of them, and Wilson refused to make more for him (the racquet had been discontinued), Connors publicly appealed to fans for the racquet. He had fans searching their garages and basements - he was looking for models with a particular serial number.
With the help of the fans, he lasted another little while with the T2000 before finally giving in and helping to create the graphite/Kevlar Pro Staff 6.0 85 sq. in. frame, which Stefan Edberg and Pete Sampras would later make famous.
